wgrib2: -bitmap


GRIB does not use a special value to determine undefined grid points instead it uses an optional bitmap. The -bitmap option prints whether the record has a bitmap and the number of undefined points if a bitmap exists.




$ wgrib2 grib2.polar -bitmap
1.1:0:no bitmap
1.2:0:no bitmap
